The Workshop is a safe place where our members use creative writing to investigate the experiences influencing their lives. The Workshop is neither group therapy nor an academic class. It is a place to play and explore. It is available to all, writers who want to develop their practice, people with an urge to write who have not yet begun that journey and anyone in-between. Everyone is welcome, people who are HIV positive, HIV negative and people on PrEP, all who are infected or affected. Our workshop, founded in 1990, helps people put into words the emotions & experiences of living in a world where HIV and AIDS continues to be a relevant social topic and raises personal issues such as stigmatization, intimacy, drug use, self care, race relations, gender identity and sexuality. The workshop encourages writing as a modality for healing, community building and creative development.
